John Lennon
Chords and lyrics


by Jeroen Dekker

To paraphrase Yoko Ono: I dedicate this site to the future guitarists. John always played from his heart. I hope you will learn to do the same.

So, whatcha lookin' at? Get yer gui-tar and play, folks. And please note: The files contained in this archive are the work of individual authors and represent their own interpretations of the songs. You may only use these files for private study, scholarship or research.


November 3, 2011 Sing The Changes added.

November 2, 2011 Made some changes to Lennon songs such as Clean-Up Time. Also to McCartney's Through Our Love, Dress Me Up As A Robber, and added I Lie Around.

October 31, 2011 The McCartneychords section has now been completely updated.

October 23, 2011 Again an avalanche of updates. More tomorrow.

October 22, 2011 Many major updates to McCartneychords. More than 50 songs have been changed, and more changes are a-comin'.

October 21, 2011 Also, McCartneychords is getting a huge overhaul: corrections, updates, the works. Pretty much everything is being put under the microscope, and updates will be made daily. So check back often, as they say.

October 20, 2011 Apart from even more Harrisonchords updates, I've added McCartney's (I Want To) Come Home.

October 19, 2011 Updated the Harrisonchords section with several updates and new songs: Life Itself, Cloud Nine, I Live For You, Flying Hour, Someplace Else, Baby Don't Run Away, Never Get Over You, Stuck Inside A Cloud, Brainwashed, Any Road, Devil's Radio, Rocking Chair In Hawaii, Circles, Pure Smokey, That's What It Takes... Ah, too many to mention. Updates everywhere, flying left, right and center. Just check for yourself, don't be so friggin' lazy.

October 18, 2011 Updated the Harrisonchords section with two new songs: Dream Away, and Shanghai Surprise. Also updated Just For Today.

July 29, 2011 Yes, I'm still alive. Honestly! It has been quiet, hasn't it? But there's not much to update or report.

November 26, 2007 Memory Almost Full has been added. The songs are: Dance Tonight, Ever Present Past, The End Of The End, Feet In The Clouds, Gratitude, House Of Wax, Mr Bellamy, Nod Your Head, Only Mama Knows, See Your Sunshine, That Was Me, Vintage Clothes and You Tell Me.

November 9, 2007 I'm thinking of adding McCartney's latest album, Memory Almost Full. Would anyone like that? The chords elsewhere, on other sites, are pretty much s***.

October 21, 2007 Ha! He's back. But not with a vengeance, not yet, no. Nearly, though. Anyway, a lot of the Lennon songs have been corrected, updated, changed, meddled with, i.e. improved. Take a look at the following songs: Help Me To Help Myself, Nobody Told Me, Happy Xmas, Instant Karma, Jealous Guy, God, Mind Games, #9 Dream, Woman, Whatever Gets You Thru' The Night, Grow Old With Me, Isolation, Out The Blue, Old Dirt Road, Real Love, Remember, Watching The Wheels, How?, and Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. You can now mail me again too. I'm also planning updates in the McCartney/Harrison department, but that damn McCartney keeps releasing stuff, I can't keep up with the guy, even though he's 65 now. It'll come, though. In the meantime, I'm sure one of those sites that steal from me like magpies on crack have his new songs, poorly-transcribed and full of bizarre errors, as is their wont. I'm not going to update the discographies anymore, though. Those things are giving me a headache.

March 16 Last December, the chords from the Lennonchords, McCartneychords and Harrisonchords sites were taken offline by the site owner to remove the possibility of legal threats from the American Music Publishing Association (MPA).

This unofficial mirror is not hosted by the original site operator. Please direct any questions/legal threats to Chris Barnes.

What you are looking at now is an unofficial mirror of the site, complete with chords, which is hosted independently of the original creator of the site. Be sure to check out the Dylanchords mirror.
